I very seldom drink coffee. Not that I dislike it, I just prefer tea. I will have a cup at a friend's house, for instance, if they have it made, or occasionally after dinner at a restaurant. I used to be a heavy coffee drinker - my work colleagues knew not to bother me before my first cup (or two), but then we both switched to tea for some reason. I have the wherewithal to make it for guests, but still make tea for myself.

I think it was the invention of Starbucks that got my attention. The aroma when you open the door to their store is just so inviting to me. I first started buying bags of beans there at Starbucks but now since it's sold everywhere, I have found it for so much less in the past couple of years. I have spoiled myself with the real stuff so much so that I can't tolerate thin weak office coffee.

Also where do they get people who donít drink coffee! Do these folks differ in any other ways of significance?

I don't know who they studied, but a huge group of non-coffee drinkers that does get occasionally studied is members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. No coffee or tea but also no alcoholic beverages, tobacco or street drugs either, and otherwise whatever foods/diet an individual wants. With alcohol and cigarettes absent, as you can imagine health measures are statistically better. But a fair study of coffee or tea would require finding a comparison group of people who also don't smoke or drink, and I don't know who all that might be.
